Vivint Sues ADT for Patent Infringement
Vivint Smart Home Inc. has announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against ADT on Feb. 25, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah.
In the complaint, Vivint asserts that ADT infringes six of Vivint’s U.S. patents related to security and smart home technology. As one of the premier providers of smart home technology, Vivint is recognized throughout the industry for its products, innovation and customer satisfaction. Vivint has more than 300 issued patents related to its proprietary technology.
A press release from ADT believes the claims asserted by Vivint are completely without merit and intends to vigorously defend against the lawsuit.
Vivint has issued the following statement:
“Vivint invests millions of dollars to develop best-in-class products and services for its customers, as well as to patent and protect this technology. We will vigorously protect and defend our unique intellectual property and innovations.”
Vivint pioneered connected devices for the home in 2010 to offer smart home features to its security customers. The company developed and launched its own proprietary platform in 2014 to offer customers a fully integrated smart home security system.
Vivint is seeking damages for ADT’s infringement of the asserted patents.
